    I would shoot to stop the threat.

    Shoot to hit. Don't really care where the first one goes as long as it stops or detracts long enough for follow-up shots.

    Like Gene said you shoot to stop the threat, If he/she dies thats fine, thats the price they pay for the business they are in. You shoot for center of visible mass......
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    Stop the threat. Anything else is secondary.

    You shoot to stop the threat. The object is to neutralize a threat and if you have to use a firearm, it is a defensive tool only. And the best way to stop the threat is to hit it center mass.

    My intent would be to use deadly force. That's the best answer I can think of.

    As others have said, shoot to stop the threat. No more no less.

    I'd do neither. If forced to shoot, I shoot to stop the threat. If in doing so the person dies, well..................it was a decision they made to put themself in that situation.

    Being forced to be politically correct, I'd shoot to stop.

    It's real hazardous to your life to shoot to wound. First off, it requires extremely proficient shooting (and luck), and second, it does not guarantee that you'll not end up dead yourself.

    It also doesn't guarantee that you shoot to wound, hit a major artery, and watch an individual you only intended to wound bleed out right in front of you.
